Several people and dogs were evacuated by firefighters after a fire broke out in south St. Louis on Thursday.
Officials say the fire started gazebo in the 2600 block of Arsenal sometime before 9 a.m.
Capt. Gregg Favre with the St. Louis Fire Department said crews responded to the scene and extinguished the blaze.
Residents in a nearby one-story home with vinyl siding were evacuated and put in fire trucks to warm up.
Authorities believe the fire was caused by an alternative heat source installed in the gazebo.
